I’ve decided to stop being a tease. Remember when I hinted that some big things were happening in the life and times of Tyler, Spencer, and Zoey? And then I did it again? And then I was M.I.A. for a week? Well I feel like things have reached the point of no return, and I can finally share our big secret without the universe pulling it out from under us.
The guesses that I’ve gotten so far have been varied, from the predictable (“Are you pregnant?”) to the more specific-to-me (“Have you started writing a book?”). I suppose the real thing might be a bit predictable, given we just got married and are ready to grow some roots in Cincinnati, although I doubt most of our friends would have imagined that…
WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!
Isn’t it beautiful?! Just kidding. We’re technically building a house. We bought a slab of land (which is actually now the one next to this underwater lot) and a builder’s contract; the house should come by the end of the year! (Also, please excuse the terrible quality iPhone photo.)
In case you couldn’t tell by the big “Sold” sign, we’re working with Drees Homes, and so far we’ve been really happy with them. We’ve chosen the “Davidson” floor plan, made all of our upgrades and structural changes, and now we’re waiting to do my favorite part: make all of our design choices! We’re looking at about 6 to 8 months for the build to take place, and I’m planning to document it periodically à la Charmingly Modern—her posts were so helpful to me during the first steps of this home building process, and I want to have a record of this exciting period in our lives!
So there you have it, folks. Thanks for stopping by for our exciting news, and I hope you’ll check back to see how all of our home building adventures turn out!
